I realize I am making a few short jumps between these pages sometimes, but I hope it’s not too bad. I could’ve shown Kat getting up and dragging herself away while Shara keeps Straw occupied and before his goons arrive, but there is still so much plot to happen and so little room on these pages!

… if you’re wondering what happens to Shara now, well … we’ll get back to her, later :)

 

Also, for everyone who cares: happy easter holidays! At least we had a few days of nice weather where I live, what about you?
